During SY 2011-2012, the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) continued their efforts to improve the validity and reliability of data reporting. BIE data collections are dependent on school level entry (self-reporting) into the Native American Student Information System (NASIS) or into the BIE's Annual Report from the schools. In addition, data is gathered and analyzed through the Special Education Integrated Monitoring Process (SEIMP) conducted annually. Through on-site activities, annual conferences, and webinar training sessions, schools have increased their level of understanding of data requirements and analysis. The BIE aligns reporting requirements with ESEA. The BIE oversees a total of 172 elementary and secondary schools, located on 64 reservations in 23 states. Of these, 59 are BIE-operated and 113 are Tribally-operated under BIE contracts or grants. The BIE provides funds to all schools however tribal groups have been granted or contracted to operate the tribally controlled schools. Both category of schools are treated the same relative to program management, monitoring, and support. The BIE included stakeholder involvement in the development of the APR when members of the BIE Advisory Board for Exceptional Children met on January 24-25, 2013 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and provided input on the data to be reported and the collection process. They asked for and received clarification on specific indicators and provided suggestions for revisions.
